compassion and human rights. obama care has turned into an issue. are we going to have a socialist country or not, not a health policy question? gay marriage is a social policy question. it's not just like can first cousins marry? it's fundamentally do you approve of homosexual conduct or not? what is your view of the bible? what is your view of tradition, human rights and equality? things that are hard to compromise on. and marijuana also behaves as drug policy does as a social policy issue, the social values issue to a large extent. president obama and the administration has said, we're going to deal with this as a legal issue. we're going to do what the law tells us. unfortunately, the law isn't all together clear on this there's going to be a lot of tussling over the law. drug policy doesn't settle it handily either partly because what we're talking about is making decisions in a vacuum without having information yet. how do you handle these very contentious social issues so you can reach a point where the country reaches a stable more or less sensible outcome without a 50 year culture
that this speech is going to sort of deal with some of the broader themes that president obama talked about on the campaign trail. he's going to talk about the need for the country to come together. we'll probably reiterate his call to sort of get rid of sort of partisan divides that have been sort of creating so much trouble here in washington. so that will be a big theme. and he might talk about some of his larger policy initiatives like immigration reform and gun control reform, but he's not going to get into a whole lot of specifics. i think you're absolutely right. he's going to kind of touch on the broader themes of all those points. >> i can't wait to see what dress the first lady will be wearing on monday night. kristin welker, thank you so much. we'll see you monday. >> reporter: thanks. i look forward to that, too. thanks, karen. >> we'll be right back. need for protein increases, yet many of us don't meet our daily protein needs? that's why there's boost® high protein nutritional drink. each delicious serving provides fifteen grams of protein to help maintain muscle and help mee

expect from barack obama? what message do you think he should be trying to project? >> i think he wants to renew hope in this country and ratify the renewal of hope that he believes came with the election. i think it will be a speech of inspiration. it will not be a detailed legislative agenda. i think it can be one of those speeches. he has this capability that can inspire people. from him, actually, in the 2008 campaign especially, and i think we may see that again on inaugural day. >> would this be the time to take off the debt ceiling and lay out some of his hard lines, or wait for the state of the union for that? >> i think he can lay out his principles. i don't think he should turn this into a partisan speech. he helps himself when he holds the high ground. can i see him saying something like, look, we disagree on a lot of issues, but we're opponents, not enemies. let's find a way to work together for the good of the country. here's what i think we should do. i mean, sounding that kind of grace note i think is important in an inaugural address. >> and when you look back at the ina for a long one question every weekday. and ilip from georgia says obama fails to user consent of the governed. reminding us of the perils that we face in the greatness of our country. ken says the real endangered species of are the citizens of the united states. as a result, taxpayers pay for security and other expenses for former living president. totaling $4 million per year. now, most of us probably would not begrudge or commanders in chief that privilege. but as usual, goes too far. b
private dealers to conduct background checks. i want to see president obama increasing federal funding for mental health treatment for all americanses who need it. i think these are perfectly reasonable steps to help this country begin to stem the tide of gun violence. there's been a petition on the white house website to have me deported on my views. here's what happened with one of the men behind the petition, alex jones. welcome to you. >> piers, thanks for having me. >> why do you want to deport me? >> we did it to bring recognition to the fact that we have all these foreigners. he's the only guy that had the guns. so we did it to point out this is global system and the mega banks that control the panic and brag they've taken over in bloomberg, reuters, you name it, brag they're going to get our guns as well. when they get our guns, they can have their world tyranny while the government buys 1.6 billion bullets, armored vehicles, predator drones, armed in u.s. skies, being used to arrest people in north dakota. the second amendment isn't there for duck hunting. it's there to protec
president obama and vice president biden will announce a " concrete " proposals to prevent gun violence. if they will be joined by children from around the country who wrote letters to the president asking what the federal government can do to curb gun violence. a ban on assault weapons is expected to be one of the axils of actions and legislative proposals the president will put forth today. gun control has been a hotly debated topic since the tragedy in newtown, conn., where 20 elementary school students and six adults were murdered by a gunman. the national rifle association is promising to fight any gun- control measure that is seals will violate the constitutional right of americans to bear arms. the organization announced earlier this week that it had a the political clout in congress to block any measure that it did not agree with. despite opposition from the gun lobby, the president is about is not to back off of his support for legislation. >> this is the courage of all of you for you to be here today. i admire, i admire the grace and i will resolve this. i have been affected b
president and certainly president obama with their strength of the office and going around the country and talking to americans which basically agree with the president, it's going to be up to the people across the country to talk to their members of congress to make sure that we and get this done. this can save lives. we've saw that. when the large magazine clips, which i've been reintroducing ever since 204, when that ban was in place, we did not see these magazines out on the streets. and they were very expensive because they were rare. we can do that again to cut that down. we're not going to be taking away anyone's right to own a gun. the supreme court already did that. but with the president laying out what he did, in a very holistic way, by the way, by working with our schools, making sure we have community policing, have psychologists. it's going to be up to the schools to make the decision on what they want, but we should be there to help them. ifwe can't protect our children from school or someone going to the movies, i think that has hit the heart of everybody in this countr
the president for accepting armed protection for his daughters at school, when mr. obama recently questioned the need for using police to step up security in schools across the country for regular folks. moments ago the white house responded calling the ad repugnant and cowardly. here is part of what they're talking about. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools? when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? >> bottom of the hour, we will ask our panel if using the president's daughters to make a point is fair game, or does the n.r.a. go too far? might the n.r.a. have even hurt its cause with this ad? and we'll circle back to what we now saw was the photo opportunity that the president had with young children flanking him as he put pressure on lawmakers to do what he wants on this issue. both sides using children, appropriate? we'll talk about it. in the meantime, you can find out more about the president's specific proposals going to our website at well, as this all plays
of them having to do with iraq, but some having to do with the obama administration's desire to get out of iraq today, we left that country. the result is kind of an increasing instability. if we had stayed, would it be unstable? it is impossible to say. i suspect we would have less instability. host: writing about this nomination, the headline -- there is the team of rivals and the movie "lincoln." moving from a team of rivals to a band of brothers. guest: the state of the union address will be on abraham lincoln's birthday. we have lots of ways to further reinforce this metaphor. host: the oscars are pending. guest: that is true. when you think of joe biden, chuck hagel, barack obama, john kerry, you four guys that worked in that committee. i think they will find opportunities. they did work together. i remember david petraeus, when he was testifying about afghanistan, was asked by richard luger about strategy and where afghanistan fit inside the broader objectives. he said, that is not my job. my job is to achieve success and achieve our objective inside afghanistan. i cannot tell yo
inauguration day on monday. >>> president obama use his weekly address to pish his plan for tougher gun controls. >> we have a strong tradition of gun ownership in this country and the vast majority of gun owners act responsibly, but i also believe most gun owners agree that we can respect the 2nd amendment while keeping an irresponsible lawbreaking few from causing harm on a massive scale. >> on tuesday the president made a series of proposals and signed 23 executive orders that beefed up existing gun control law. the fierce senate hearings on the president's proposals are schedule for the end month. >>> there were separate shoots at gun shows across the nation today. in raleigh, north carolina, police say three people were injured when a shotgun accidentally fired. the owner brought it to the gown show to sell and didn't unload it. in minneapolis a man shot himself in the hand. and in medina, ohio a gun dealer found the he was checking out was loaded when he pulled the trigger and discharged. it wounded a bystander in the arm and leg. >>> those shootings came as hundreds of gun righ
of power this time from obama to obama, but what it shows is that it's the president taking the oath of office to lead an entire nation, to heal some of the divisions of the election, to bring the country together and lead into a second term. from the ceremonial aspect, the pomp and circumstance is much, much different than four years ago when you had hope, change, 1.8 million people on the mall. the first african-american president ever elected. >> the crowd very different. >> the biggest crowd ever in washington ever on the mall including mlk's speech i have a dream. this is a moment we're watching, but that was a transitional moment in american history. >> tell us about as someone who watches these inaugurations, takes a look at history overall, what will you be watching for tomorrow in both the ceremony and the address that the president is going to give? >> well, jenna, i'll be looking for what his maybe four policy priorities that hee before he becomes a lame duck. we're two years out from 2014, only four years from 2016. really, he's got a hundred days, really maybe a year to
that hangs over jpmorgan. dagen: president obama expected to announce his plan for greater gun control in this country in less than an hour. that proposal will include a ban on assault weapons, high-capacity magazine clips and background checks on every gun owner. terry, ray to see you. we should point out, there will be more than a dozen executive actions, as well, that the president will take. in terms of what congress will have to tackle in this proposal, how much do you think of it will fly? >> first i want to say this, i cannot help it, i see this spectacle in washington today. the use of these victims, you know, this is not the beginning of a subsidence conversation about how to get at the gun problem in this country. it is a political move by this president to talk on our emotional strings. it is unfortunate. the american people are divided on the gun issue. they expect washington to have a serious conversation. unfortunately, this spectacle today, is not a good start. dagen: you know what, you can criticize either side. the current president did not invent political spectacle i
the country. every weekday from 3:00 to 6:00. we will see you next week. >>ood evening. i m. lowrie rothman. america's longest war is closer to an end. obama set in motion a reversal of policy to negotiate with terrorists. you heard correctly that includes talking to a group that is accused of aiding international terrorist. that was at a joint news conference today with a news conference with karzai. both are putting there support for the support role this spring and reconciliation talks with the television. >> ultimately security gains should be matched with political progress of real reconciliation progress with the afghan government and television. president karzai updated me on the road map to peace and we agreed the process we should open the television office to facilitate talks. >> but the readiness of the army is closed but they're showing that they're able to operate without the assistance of the u.s. and violence is higher than the surge from two years ago. also insider tax last year there were 45 attacks resulting in 62 deaths among the coalition forces compared to 65 the previo
and the family. obama's second inaugural address coming up soon would be a good time for him to rely on the country that the government is dependent on the people, not the other way around. we also need more clarity and discussion from all of the leaders about the importance of family despite the widespread acceptance that children do better with two-parent married households despite what we know about the instability in financial hardships caused by single parents trying to raise children on their own and despite statistics about the worst educational attainment, greater criminal justice and a great welfare usage among the single parent families, despite all of that our leaders, our universities, our media and religious institutions and the leaders of the groups where the problem of single parenthood is the most severe both of the african-american and hispanic community refused to take this issue on the aggressively or deal with in any meaningful way. this problem is particularly glaring in the reporting of most of our media, which to it sometimes credit devotes great effort in chro
exactly in half. the reality is that the half of the country that is open devoting for obama, in fact, voted for him in november still is a strongly pro gun control constituency and the large extent democrats have been paralyze odd this issue by the fear of losing voters they've already lost. mostly blue collar white men, more rural voters. i think the key for the president is going to be to build a coalition that includes not only democrats, but those blue state republicans. that's the big difference between the politics of gun control and congress from the 199 0z until today. in the 1990s those blue state republicans felt pressure to support it. >> you could go through congress, or the president could go to issue an executive order. talk to me first about an executive order. obviously it would have to be around laws that already exist. what are his options potentially on the table? >> pretty limited. i think on executive order, they are going to have elements of executive action in the package that are coming out with this week, but they will acknowledge from the white house themsel
explained he has no role in venezuela or the countries in north america or the crisis like this is because, you know, he's just a servant and an employee of an organization that nothing happened. do you expect during the new obama term a different approach? we understand everything we do from here to washington could be , could backfire but in the context from the collective commitments to preserve the freedom of speech, fundamental principles of the separation of powers support, given the situation in venezuela, are you expecting something different for these new for years in the administration? >> he just articulated a question that i couldn't quite articulate that is precisely the one i was hoping. >> let me answer as blunt end quickly as a possible. the victim and the beneficiary of the growing irrelevance basically they've declined in stature and importance has sort of them less open to observation and criticism because it is becoming less and less relevant. i think it's difficult i honestly don't know how you turned the corner to make it -- i do think giving a much more -- to take th
. another buyback even is planned for monday. president obama is expected to release his recommendations for reducing gun violence across the country. if the president and vice president will unveil the proposal as a dreaded event at the white house today. >> it is a 28 currently in novato. as we take a look at the weather headlines we will see plenty of sunshine and clear skies. the temperatures will be warmer that yesterday. the north south bay should see temperatures climbing into the '60s. i will have a full look at today's forecast and i will have more about the warm-up coming up. >> it is surprisingly light traffic at the toll plaza. even in the east bay at this hour we would usually see some considerable amount of congestion at highway 4 in interstate 580. that is just not the case right now. >> developing news. 4 fire stations in contra costa county have closed. people are concerned and the communities and they met last night to talk about the closures. to get you more news faster we will turn to mike pelton who joins us live from lafayette. >> this is live up but do not let this
. >> there are so many things that happen every week in northern california, but all over the country, we realize that this week it is the two-year anniversary of the shooting of congresswoman gabrielle giffords and in the wake of mass shootings in connecticut and in colorado, the obama administration is pushing for new gun safety laws. right here in california, several lawmakers have already introduced bills regulating firearms and ammunition sales. one of the latest to do so, assembly member nancy skinner of berkeley who sat down with me earlier to explain how her new bill would help curb gun violence. assembly member nancy skinner. thank you so much for joining us. >> glad to be here. >> just this week near bakersfield, california, taft high school, another shooting. what could your bill ab48 have done in that situation? >> well, the young man who did the shooting had a shotgun that he had to pump, so that's why few people were killed in that incident or shot. if he had used one of these conversion kits and turned his gun into something that could shoot lots of weapons fast, he would have kill
'll bring you the latest on what she is saying regarding the americans. >>> plus, president obama begins the second term in less than a week. four years ago, 26% of americans believed the country was headed in the right direction. well, now, 41% agree with that statement. nbc's first read team tackles the question, we heard it over and over again in the election. is this country better off now than it was four years ago? how would you answer it? join our conversation on twitter. give me your answers on our account. here's what happened... i was talking to my best friend. i told her i wasn't feeling like myself... i had pain in my pelvic area... and bleeding that wasn't normal for me. she said i had to go to the doctor. turned out i had uterine cancer, a type of gynecologic cancer. i received treatment and we're confident i'll be fine. please listen to your body. if something doesn't feel right for two weeks or longer, see your doctor. get the inside knowledge about gynecologic cancers. knowing can make all the difference in the world. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes she is.
four years. a lot of things have come together for him. he's had sync with the country and the country is in sync for him. the quer for the gop, are you prepared for this barack obama? you didn't seem to be able to handle the first one. are you prepared for this one who now has the kind of wind in his sails going into a second term that can be very, very good for him in terments of at least in the first six or so months laying down some hard lines for the gop to cross. i think they can, but they're going to have to make the argument, you know, from a principled position, get off the crazy noise we have -- >> don't they have -- >> distract -- >> on an issue we just talked about which is at the heart i think of the common conversation in this country, we're on the same page about gun it's right now. bob, you agree, right? we're talking about guns. he didn't change the topic. it's the topic, right? >> it had to be the topic. what happened was the tragedy has been to vivid, he's been so powerful and clear, that it shattered the old nra notion that somehow or other this was about gun confis
a gun grabber. everybody's a gun grabber. president obama did introduce yesterday a very broad package of reforms to try to deal with gun violence in this country. expanded access to mental health treatment, improvements in the background checks system, resources for schools to have more armed guards on site if they want them. and yes, a renewal of the old assault weapons ban that we had for ten years before it expired in 2004. since president obama introduced those measures all of the discussion in washington has been about the viability of what he is proposing, right? renewing the assault weapons ban, that's not viable, that'll never pass. that is the chorus from washington. the nra of course says that nothing will pass. old steve stockman says i don't care if anything passes, let's impeach him anyway, gun grab, gun grab. but because of what is going on in washington right now, because that is the discussion, we are also -- we're not just getting the sort of predictable loudness from predictable washington loud voices. we are also getting something really useful. we're also getting p
the president? >> throughout this country, you are seeing the ranks of our important leadership, both public sector and private sector, becoming very diverse, reflecting america. which i think is phenomenal. our diversity is our strength. president obama has tried to make sure the diversity is a hallmark of his administration. you are making decisions that the public agrees with. i hope he continues to look for the most qualified people in america, whatever their gender, their ethnicity, simply because, if he gets the best, and he looks out for that diversity, we are going to have a talented group of people serving. i think the people that he has so far named to fill some of these posts that have been vacated are extremely talented. chuck hagel, as far as i know, is not minority or female, but he is extremely qualified. a vietnam vet, a warrior, a patriot, someone who is no nonsense. i think he is a proven leader and do a great job. you don't have to be a minority or a female to be able to serve in the cabinet and do well. i think everyone should have an opportunity. i think the president is
the current value at $294 million, that's a 7% increase since the obamas moved in. meantime, two high profile obama supporters will miss the inauguration on monday. both oprah and george clooney will be out of the country according to their reps. however, no shortage of celebs monday. beyonce singing "the national anthem." katy perry, steve ri wonder are just a few of the big names to be there. nbc will have coverage beginning at 5:30 a.m. with a special edition of "morning joe" and i will be live along the parade route for msnbc and nbc. those are the things we thought you should know. >>> and time now for the "gut check." as president obama heads in to the second term, our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll found 43% of americans are optimistic about the next four years. 22% have mixed feelings. what's your gut tell you? how much hope and optimism do you have about the next four years? cast that vote and take a look at what you're saying about yesterday's "gus check." do you believe manti te'o's story he was the victim of a cruel hoax about a dead girlfriend that never existed? 16% say

gun control and immigration. obama 2012 campaign manager, jim messina will head that group. it will be separate from the democratic national committee. >>> hillary clinton will step down as secretary of state with the vast majority of the country approving of the job she's done. an nbc news poll finds that 69% of americans approve of the job she's done while only 25% disapprove. secretary clinton widely seen as the early favorite to get the democratic nod for president in 2016, although she has not said whether she's interested in running. >>> it is now 4:49. feel free to tweet and text away during monday's inauguration. the biggest cell phone carriers are making sure you don't lose service during the inauguration. this is a much bigger issue than it was for the first inauguration four years ago. more than 130 million americans now you have smartphones according to the wireless association. just 41 million had smartphones in 2009. cell phone carriers are encouraging you to send text messages instead of making calls. phone calls use more of the network. >>> metro is offering
china, against other countries, is if we have a very well-educated population. it's my hope in this term, president obama will get to implement the great ideas that he has to link those two, education and economic competitiveness >> if i didn't say so, you're both democrats. >> we are >> i probably should add that. but congressman, you're a freshman congressman. what to you is the most important issue? >> well, of course, getting the nation's fiscal situation in order is probably the over-arching issue that we need to deal with. also, immigration reform, of course, gun safety. but i think right now, at the moment we're in, in our nation, making sure that both parties can come to the table and work and come to agreements in earnest. it's been a long time since we've been able to do that. so whether it's gun safety or whether it's immigration, if you can't come and sit in good faith and work things out, then you're going to continue to have a lot of the gridlock we had before. i also think that speaker boehner should really consider dropping the hastert rule, for example, which i think has
: they are indeed. they're up cooped up. we could go all day. home values are rising all over the country including guess where? pennsylvania avenue. according to zillow since president obama and his family moved into the white house the value is increased to $295 million. that is up from 2009 when the estimated value was $176 million. may be able to beat him down to 280 million with a bigger down payment. melissa: wonder what financing. speaking of white house how much will the ultimate inauguration cost? close to $500,000. the inaugural committee is offering a package tickets to a ball. parade plus access to other receptions. the going rate is $250,000 to sit up front for the swearing-in. you have to purchase tickets separately. throw in a presidential hotel suite, food, shopping souvenirs, you could rack up quite a tab. you don't have to spend that much the swearing-in is free and open to the public right here on fox business. this is where you get neil cavuto. that is priceless. ashley: we gave you a little tease earlier. don't miss neil cavuto. there he is, still smiling. hosting complete cove
or more about getting changing control in this country? >> i think it's probably both. while they would very much like to embarrass republicans, democrats would always lector and bearish republicans, especially the obama democrats, but in this case in this circumstance that think this is about a way to achieve maximal controlled on firearms, probably expand background checks, perhaps expand into private sales between individuals, do whatever they can to restrict, regulate the sale and use of guns that executive power allow. gerri: here is what the president had to say in his press conference about what he would like to see in that package. >> what you can count on is that the things that i have said in the past, the belief that we have tough starter background cat -- stronger background checks, can do a much stronger job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of the hands of folks should not have them, assault weapons ban that is meaninul, those are things that continue to believe make sense. gerri: what is interesting, the president continues to push around wit
with president obama, obviously, the treasury secretary's moving on at some point, but, you know, how is that relationship with ford, one of our star manufacturers in the country? >> well, as you know, liz, i've been pleased to support the economic council, also the export council, and i really have been pleased to be part of that solution to talk about the importance. i worked together on solutions that foster economic development in the united states, and i know that the administration in congress know the value of manufacturing in the united states, and the work we did on the free trade agreement with south korea was fantastic. this is all about creating an environment where businesses can grow, especially led by manufacturing, and we're going to be exporting the explorer from chicago because of what we've done to improve our competitors in the united states to 94 countries around the world so there's no reason that we can't do this in the united states if we have a laser focus on creating an environment where businesses can grow. liz: good news. as you look over the right shoulder
are on the verge of exploding. i believe obama is getting a pass on the responsibility. paul ryan's plan, if it had been pushed through, how would it have affected the financial condition of this country? thank you. guest: thank you. chairman paul ryan, the chairman of the house budget committee, has had budget the last seniors. if they had been implemented fully, what would happen is we would not have a balanced budgets. that's a dream that those of us who wanted 25 years ago, have admitted cannot be done in a short time. what it would have done would be to reduce the increase of our debt and it would have made our debt rise by a smaller margin than the increase in our gross domestic product. that's all we want. we want to stabilize this debt somewhere around 60% of gdp. that's a number that the international monetary fund and others have said is sustainable level. right now the $16.40 trillion is at 102% of gdp in it we have a tough time ahead of us. the paul ryan bill, had it become law, and done something useful. but you will notice that it did not. the american people had this debate during th
president is running again. so if barack obama wants to extend -- which is very difficult, have three democratic presidents in a row, it is all going to depend on his success in governing and leading the country. if he is success, and comes out as a very popular president who has achieved something, then there's an excellent chance that the democrats are capture another term in the white house. if he doesn't. if he leaves as a failed president like george w. bush, then we'll get a change in party power in 2016 and this is true regardless of the identity of the democratic nominee. i think barack obama would very much like to be one of those rare presidents who passes on his success to another candidate of his own party. that doesn't happen very often. it happened with reagan and bush, and before that you have to go back to roosevelt and truman. >> michael: yeah, i agree with you, i just sort of see his relationship with biden as hilary as compelling political theater. what does it matter what happens on monday? who is paying at attention? who really cares? and it i
. i want everybody to understand i came from a different country and i love this country i served the military and came out and became a cop. what i want everybody to know and want president obama to know, i feel like our country is divided. we need to come together as one. i get to talk to kids. the lady, the mother of that evil kid that shot those kids should have had enough common sense to think, hey, you know what i should be a responsible gun owner and take these guns and lock them out. out of the house and what i want people to remember is our flag is made out of the blood of patriots, do not give up your rights because when you give up your rights you're going to fight with blood to get the rights back. and that second amendment has given us every other amendment and as a sportsman, as a cop, guns are not the problem. we need to become a better country, need to become better parents and responsible. if we're responsible americans, human beings with our case, this country with be greater. >> i want to apologize we didn't get to hear from everybody tonight. i promise we will
're living in a point right now here in the country where people with becoming more aware of the latino presence, and the importance steps that latinos are playing right now, especially in politics, you know, the latino vote very important in getting obama re-elected, and now, you know, the event that the republican party, it seems, that they really do need to change their thinking with latinos, and the issue important to us like immigration. i am very excited about, you know, the way the country is looking at latinos and to realize that, you know, we are an important part of the society. we need to work hard to create immigration reform to help those here to definitely move up, and to become an important power in politics and sectors of the society. very exciting times. >> host: speaking of the 2012 vote and latino vote, did you vote for president obama? are you a citizen today? >> guest: i am a citizen today, yes, aam. >> host: did you support president obama for re-elect? >> guest: i did, i did, i voted for him. >> host: can you tell us why? >> guest: i voted for him because, first o
, not always quietly. i am very much opposed to the guns in our country. i do believe that people on the republican side have been unfair to president obama from the beginning because they are the ones who did not accept his invitations. host: thank you for the call. what is the nra opposed to a gun registry, we can finally tracked for the guns come from. itst: first of all two absolutely captures some of the sentiment out there. it has been strong from the start. democrats like to point out that mitch mcconnell said the senate republican leader said his chief job was to make president obama a one-term president. it is responsible for the gridlock in the chamber for the last two years or so. i would set one interesting thing about the numbers is that president obama's approval records right now is exactly the same, i think it is the same as bush's was as he began the second term 49% approval. interesting parallels, the republicans are just as unhappy with president obama as democrats word with president bush in 2005. there are parallels between parties by giving the other guys a c
. that with obama care is going to be possible. now every health insurance plan in the country will require addiction and mental health treatment as part of the every insurance package. so now when you go in for your checkup, with your going to get your checkup from the neck up, too. you'll be tested whether you have depression, anxiety or any kind of dependency issue. and that's good for all of us. because you can't treat diabetes or asthma or cardiovascular disease if you're not addressing the drinking or depression or anxiety. the earlier we start doing this, the better it is going to be for all of us. chris's book does a lot of that educating. >> most of these issues develop in adolescence and intervention at that point is the surest way of changing trajectory. >> very interesting. let me say, i have so many questions to ask you. we, of course, know you as a former congressman. >> yes. >> very public battles play out on the front pages. i want to spend a little bit of time on this, but for those watching, they're kennedy cousins, what do they have to worry about? you sit here today diff
minutes past noon in the east where we have been listening to president obama lay out what certainly can be called the most aggressive and sweeping gun control measures in many decades. n this country. nearly two dozen in all. a combination of executive orders and proposals which will have to go through congress. those include universal background checks and also a renewed ban on military style assault weapons. including a limit on high capacity magazines. the president knows it will not be easy to do this task, saying, it will be difficult. this will be difficult. yet they are common sense proposals, in his words. eamon javers is live at the white house. he's been listening in. eamon, the president knows it's not going to be easy. what are the chances any of these proposals get through congress? >> reporter: well, scott, these were solemn and somber remarks from the president here as you saw, surrounded by some of the families of those affected by gun violence. but also as you say, leaven with a doze of political reality here. a lot of those here in washington think a renewal of the ass
's listen. >> obama: i want to be clear about this. the debt cereal something not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. the issue here is whether or not america pays it's bills. we are not a debt-deep nation. >> cenk: i like it. now normally i say it should have been stronger, but it was pretty strong and he made his point very good. it continues. >> obama: this is not an implicatedcomplicateed subject. you don't go out to dinner, eat all your want, and then leave without paying the check. if you do, you're breaking the law. and congress should think about it the same way that the american people do. >> cenk: i like it, man. i do. that's exactly right analogy. you know, of course, i'd go further, but i would every time, right? i'd say listen, the republicans spent this money. they spent it in tax cuts for billionaires and millionaires, they spent it in the iraq war afghanistan, the great majority of this money was spent by george w. bush. now
reasonable that the country will agree with as a condition for raising the debt. not for eliminating deficit. it could be balanced budget amendment. don't stop the checks. they are asking obama instead of 40 cents off the dollar but cut a cent or two off the borrowing and we'll raise the debt ceiling. he is saying if you do anything, you are going to stick to default. i would channel him on that. >> the future of gun control from this administration ahead of recommendations out tomorrow by the vice president. that's next. my wife takes centrum silver. i've been on the fence about it. then i read an article about a study that looked at the long term health benefits of taking multivitamins. they used centrum silver for the study... so i guess my wife was right. [ male announcer ] centrum. always your most complete. are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo,
it isn't about bashing the northeast. it is about saving the country. >> we have to get this under control. most conservatives believe we have to come to a point where we stand and fight. i hope this is the time. >> after president obama said it would be irresponsible and absurd for republicans to insist on spending cuts in order to raise the debt ceiling and key senate republican says mr. obama doesn't get it. >> you have a kid that keeps a credit card loaded and a person that would tear up the credit card but you look at the credit. republicans are willing to pay for past bill but this is about the future bill. the president misses the point here. >> reporter: today, house democratic whip steny hoyer said new revenue must accompany spending cuts. for day, the final passage is expected in the house in the next hour or so. bret? >> bret: mike, we will follow that on fox. thank you. ominous note now from one of the world's top credit agencies. fitch rating says the u.s. could lose the top credit rating if there is a delay in raising the debt limit. we'll find out with the senior pol
pbs stations. >> woodruff: again, the major developments of the day. president obama made ready to announce his strategy for cutting gun violence, as new york state's legislature enacted the toughest gun law in the country. former cycling great lance armstrong reportedly admitted to doping during his career during an interview with oprah winfrey. online we have the story of a boston eatery where second chances for employees come with a side of slaw. hari sreenivasan explains. >> sreenivasan: haley house has served time for weapons violations, drug trafficking, even murder. now, they're serving up lunch, and redefining their lives while working at this popular neighborhood restaurant. all that and more is on our web site, judy? >> woodruff: and that's the newshour for tonight. on wednesday, we'll have full coverage of president obama's push for new gun laws. i'm judy woodruff. >> brown: and i'm jeffrey brown. we'll see you online, and again here tomorrow evening. thank you, and good night. >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> bnsf railw
countries are hardest hit. >>> this morning the treasury department said the trillion dollars coin idea to solve the debt crisis is off the table. some of president barack obama's liberal ally as has been promoting it. the trillion dollars coin fast and draw the funds to pay bills should congress fail to raise the debt ceiling. treasury officials say it's illegal to mint a coin for a purpose like that. >>> he's considered one of the greatest cyclists of all-time but hanging over his head are charges of doping to achieve that success. well now lance armstrong may be coming clean about drug use during his tour de france races. abc news reporter mark greenblat has the latest. >> in his last interview with oprah nearly two years ago, lance armstrong got a hero's welcome. now disgraced and labeled as a cheater, he will face a much tougher audience when he sits with her again. but if, as expected, armstrong confesses to doping, it would likely come only after the statute of limitations on perjury charges ran out. following this strong denial under oath. >> i just want to make sure your testim
of these people. remember, it was voters in pennsylvania that president obama said was clinging to their guns and religion. >> now, the republican party in what's going on an uneasy alliance for them in coal country, is the fact these rank and file guys, they're pro labor union. that's why the club for growth and some of these more conservative groups don't like her because she's pro union and trying to be pro coal. >> and there was the big sort of first test we're going to see of republicans in washington, d.c., whether or not they can control their own primaries or wield the sort of influence they've lost over the past couple of years. one of the best candidates, one of the best recruits that a republican party could bring in terms of trying to win a race in november, but this a low turnout in west virginia, maybe somebody runs to her right and we get a sharon engel, christine o'donnell situation. >> and we've seen still, democratic party still has some strength left in a place like kentucky and west virginia and it's usually based in this, the divide over business, isn't it? >> and the big
, president obama plans to introduce legislation next week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after newtown urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military-style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people. >> so let's look at all of those items up there. richard wolffe, every one of them has overwhelming support of the american people. universal background checks. 85% of americans support that. restoring a ban on milita military-style assault weapons. that's a 60/40 proposition now. limiting magazines to ten rounds. almost 7 in 10 americans support that. additional tools for law enforcement. you know that's got to be an 80/20, 90/10 issue. the same with improving mental health services. i bring these numbers up only to say, once again, that my r
because they say it is an important part of the >> gun control continues to be a hot topic in this country. and today vice president joe biden urged america's mayors to to help the obama administration in their efforts reduce gun violence. speaking at the u-s conference of mayors in washington today. biden says he doesn't want a repeat of tragedies such as last months school massacre in connecticut. >> i have been in this fight for a long time i have no illusions of the house distortions will come from all sides. and i know full well the political obstacles are not impenetrable. yesterday. president obama urged congress to adopt several other gun control measures. such as banningcapacity magazines. the vice president says the administration is ready to take on the politicalbiden also dismissed the n-r-a's proposal to place in america. >> pam: is tiger woods trying to get his way back? coming up, gary radnich. in a good evening, everybody let us take a look. >> we are going to get ready for a great football game. last year tophet we had a chance and is now this year we are going to find out
confrontational attitude towards that they try to atracking poll. 49% for obama. 67% in the polls four years ago. 18 point decline from that. the way that he is operating is not designed to make him more popular and bring the country together. >> now, one of the people that is thought to be a competitor to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently the nra took out an add saying that president obama is a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards at other schools. christie didn't like that ad by the nra and said this. >> don't be dragging people's children into this. it's wrong. and i think it demeans them. and it makes them less of a valid, trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate. >> so what did you think? >> well, a reasonable objection to the nra, remember, he is from new jersey, a blue state. he has got to get reelected this year. and he has a legitimate beef with the ad. i frankly think the underlying point of the nra ad accurate o

. not recapping but what we've been through as a country. then, a few great goals for the four years to come but not a lot of specifics. host: because the this day is a sunday, president obama has the luxury of having one more day to prepare for his speech. what is happening 24 hours before an inaugural speech? do you think everything is in place or is there fine tuning going on? guest: typically, at least the president i worked for bill clinton, would work on the major speeches up to the last minute. i understand that president obama has some of those tendencies as well. this is such a big moment for the president that he has to make sure he fine tunes it. it is his voice. speech writers can give him a great draft but i think at this moment he's putting his final touches on it himself. host: we've been talking this morning about second inaugural addresses and a lot of references to lincoln's second saturday much more famous than his first address but that is the exception. guest: i suppose it is. there aren't a lot of inaugural addresses out there. but lincoln's definitely stands out. i'm t
